important managerial job in the world. president of the united states leader of the free world. my question was, how does he do a? how does he decide? how does he make incisions? how does the governor? >> the senate is about to return from recess for a series of those. a bill to continue funding the government for six months. a bill sponsored by montana senator, jon tester to ease regulations and was on some outdoor sports, fishing and hunting. and a bill by kentucky senator, randy paul to cut off u.s. aid to pakistan, libya and egypt. this is live coverage of the senate on c-span 2. senate will come to order. mr. leahy: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from vermont is recognized. mr. leahy: mr. president seeing the distinguished chairman of the foreign relations committee in the chair, i have a feeling i may be preaching to the converted but let me say that we were -- all of us were outraged by the mob that denigrated the muslim faith -- or by the video that denigrated the muslim faith but then by the mob violence, some of it rep
throughout much of the muslim world today. in indonesia, the united states forced to close all diplomatic areas. shouts of death to america filling the air. coffins draped and american flags were burned. in malaysia, u.s. citizs told to stay away from the american embassy. this development tonight. the libyan government admitted they will be of little help in the search for the killers of ambassador chris stevens. a surprised expression of empathy and comprehension from president obama who said he understands why the muslim world has erupted in the demonstrations marked by all out american hatred. >> the natural protest that are because of the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm u.s. interests. lou: also surprising president obama declining to cease the opportunity to champion the americans right to free speech or address the relationship between the united states and the muslim world. we take all of that up here tonight with former u.s. ambassador to the united nations john bolton and robert maginnis and douglas holtz-eakin joins us and the au
they are lying? >> yes. i think the president of the united states has lied to the american people but i think he may be lying to himself. i think this president is so totally one-sided in his view of islam, he is so misinformed. he is so willfully ignorant, if you look at his cairo speech that was filled with factual errors. this is a president who simply can't face reality when it comes to people who wanted to kill us. when i see bear bearians -- barbarians torturing an american ambassador, i found those scenes horrifying and i think every american should be enraged. i don't want the commander in chief apologizing and talking about some stupid movie. america has the right to be a free country. america stands for freedom. we should be standing up around the world telling these people, we're not going to give in to you. we are prepared to meet your violence with whatever effort takes. we should hunt every one of them down. >> sean: i would really like to know -- what is the president going to do about it? now we are spending $70,000 on an ad in pakistan that shows our secretary of state, our pres
the killings and to show support for democracy and the united states. hundreds of people stormed the headquarters of the radical islamist group that has been linked to the attack and say that they and not extremists represent the real sentiments of libyan people. >> now to benghazi, libya, where our senior correspondent has more on those pro-democracy demonstrators. >> reporter: well, randi, this is probably one of the few countries where we are seeing mass demonstrations, not just in support of the united states but more condemning the attack that took place on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. people take together streets yesterday in the thousands, demanding democracy, but more importantly demanding an end to these extremist militias whom people and the government here say were in fact behind the attack that took ambassador stevens' life and the life of three other americans. what happened is that at night on friday hundreds of these pro-democracy demonstrators began taking the situation into their own hands and storming various headquarters of known extremist militias in the ci
and poor people who went out to express gratitude to the united states. but i think this is a reckoning time for president obama. the islamic world served notice on him. >> within these countries we are learning more about extremist groups that are not limit to al-qaida. we hear about others. who are they and how concerned about you on the impact. >> we should be concerned. the egyptian and tun and others that are concerned. they are concerned. we started redemption in libya. people went out and attacked sharia. and people look at these and they have to wonder if they want to live under the control of the celatres. they won 25 percent of the vote in egypt and the insanity among the ranks. they want to cover the pyramidses in egypt and don't want tourism and esset ra. in tunizia and egypt they have to be disciplined by the population itself as we have seen in lib yampt we can't do it from a distance or remote control. >> celafrees is growing in that country. t defends on the setting. what is troubling is the growth of the jihad . that is because we didn't go to the help syrian rebellion.
the united states. you've got events elsewhere. foreign policy is supposed to be a big, big barack obama advantage in these campaigns? are these events changing that perception. >> i think they are and should be. one might ask, what is barack obama's foreign policy? the part of the problem is there's no sense that there's any sort of strategic idea. >> paul: i disagree with that. he would say to you, he would say, look, we're tough on terror, 0 we got bin laden, we've decimated the al-qaeda, and meanwhile, we've approached the islamic world in a different way, we've reached out, we've put on a better american face, not where like bush so my foreign policy is to engage the world and meanwhile, we're killing a really bad guy. >> tactical not-- >>, but barack obama's foreign policy is i'm barack obama. he came to cairo in june of 2009 and says, hi, i'm barack obama, i'm not george w. bush. we're going to have a nice conversation, i speak, you know, your language or wish i did, i grew up in indonesia, i have muslim relatives so therefore his analysis of the problem with the bush administrati

for the united states to act, and they have a right to defend itself. and some say it could happen before the election. but the attempts to get president obama to establish red lines failed. and in his efforts to have a meeting with president obama in new york next week have also so far not come to fruition, jamie. >> jamie: so far, that is true. rick, great reporting this week, thank you. >> kelly: and there's no letup in the anti-american protests we have been talking about, that is sweeping throughout the muslim world. this is the scene we're looki i and police firing tear gas to disperse hundreds of stone throwing protesters there. reports of dozens injured and arrested and several cars burned. after days of protests, what will it look like to calm or what will it take to calm the muslim world? joining me live right now, stuart holiday, ambassador to the u.n. for special political affairs and the president of the meridian center and always good to have you join us on the program, and tell us about exactly what's going on in the middle east right now. how do you see american foreign po
countries. >> since our founding the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. >> the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its content and message. >> that's exactly how it's airing there and these subtitles you see below are in urdu. the state department says the ad cost $70,000 to run on 14 different channels in pakistan which reach 80% to 90% of the country in prime time for five days. this is a major blitz on the air waves. to give you some context, what a bet the u.s. is making on this, to do the same thing in the united states, to reach 80% to 90% of the population in prime time would cost millions and millions and millions of dollars. just one ad on one night in this country costs $135,000 on average. all in to have that impact in the u.s. would be at least $7 million and could be multiples of that. the bottom line, the obama administration is all in on convincing pakistanis that the u.s. government is not bad. it's a complicated relationship and i
. >> 33 years of service to the united states deserves something. >> iran's president has repeatedly turned down meeting requests from levinsoavvilevinsn the past. >>> a man jumped into the bronx zoo because of a desire to be with the tigers. he jumped from the monorail yesterday into the pit where a tiger bit him. rescuers helped move the tiger away from the man. >> is the tiger going to be put down? >> no, absolutely -- as i said, the tiger did nothing wrong in this, did nothing wrong in this case at all. >> 25-year-old man is in stable condition with a broken shoulder, rib, pelvis, and ankle. he will be charged with trespassing. >>> the filmmaker behind that anti-muslim movie that has caused outrage in several countries is said to be in hiding, and he may need the stay there. a pakistani minister says he'll pay for his death. he says he feels it's his duty as a muslim to do that, and he is inviting two of his enemies to carry out the assassination. >> i have announced today anyone who murders him, i will reward with 100,000 u.s. dollars. i invite the taliban and al qaeda brothers
. this is highest judicial office in the united states, farce enforcement. you have the head of the criminal division who is let off the hook in this to the attorney general still going to be in office who is responsible. someone has to be responsible and accountable. i think that is all we're asking for. when a u.s. agent is killed and this kind of money, waetd taxpayer money takes place. >> gregg: the president says his predecessor is responsible. in fact on thursday. president obama told the uni vision audience, i'm sure you saw this -- i'll quote him here. fast and furious was a field initiated program begun under the previous administration. congressman, that is utterly untrue, is it not? >> i think that is shameful for the president to say that. yes, there was a fast and furious program before but it was properly operated. you didn't have people killed or weapons gone astray like this. >> gregg: and it stopped in 2007 two years before fast and furious begin. >> and it was a successful program. i have once chaired the criminal drug policy subcommittee in congress and we have done these
colleagues. >> there are nearly 40 of our jobs bills sitting over in the united states senate. all part of the plan for american job creators. >> congressional republicans want to run away, but you know what? you can run, but you cannot hide from your record. >> they have not passed a budget in more than three years. >> time and time again, my republican colleagues have stalled or blocked perfectly good pieces of legislation to score points with the tea party. >> they have not passed a single appropriation bill. they haven't passed a defense authorization bill for the first time in -- a half a century. these things are usually about as standard as turning the lights on. they haven't done any of them. it is a disgrace. >> there is one very important thing congress is doing before leaving town, and that is passing a bill to fund the government for six months to make sure it does not shut down. but that is not exactly worthy of accolades, considering the only reason they're doing this stop gap bill is that they never sent one of the 12 step bills they were supposed to, to the president's d
if this is going to silence his partisan critic in the united states senate who would like to keep control of the united states senate? i don't think so. >> will it even silence republicans? because some have said that no matter what romney releases, that this is not going to end. >> you know, i think that this whole tax release thing is basically a media invention, a partisan invention. he had released two years. now he's released three years. i don't think the public is interested. gallup yesterday released a poll that was really stunning, that the u.s. trust of the media is at an all-time low. 60% of americans have little to no trust in the media, particularly now that we're going into the election season, because the media -- we're chasing these silly stories like the tax returns or the hidden videos and we're not getting to the meat and the substance of the different candidates, of mitt romney and president obama, their policies, whether they're successful or not, and what that means for the future of this country. we're focusing on the wrong things. >> all right, well, let's get back
, wherever would he get that idea? from here in the united states. where the administration sold out one of its own citizens because he exercised his first amendment rights. that is what happened over the weekend. and they blame it on the video. now we have a situation people are like yes, been a speech. that's right. >> eric: we do a perp walk for guy that made the film and blame him for the violence aren't we telling guys maybe we will been a free speech? >> juan: i would be outraged if nip said in america we should not have it's so essential to us. to my mind, religious tolerance is also. and the fact that they made the amateur file video and had been attacking christians i would have been deeply upset and said it was wrong. if the muslim community is upset and they think there should be tolerance -- >> greg: they don't believe in tolerance. they call themselves religion of peace. i'd tite see what a religion of war is out. >> kimberly: this is dirty money. we would haven't our presence in pakistan. we need the placement in the region. oh, yeah, hey, you know, big daddy, the check is
. >> as i've said to the prime minister in every single one of our meetgs, the united states will always have israel's back when it comes to israel's security. >> reporter: on some of the most sensitive issues, obama and romney seem to agree, at least when it comes to the big picture. jerusalem is israel's capital. a final peace agreement should include what's called a two-state solution, israel living alongside palestine and iran must be stopped from building a nuclear bomb. but there are differences when it comes to specific details on how to achieve those goals. romney charges that president obama hasn't been a strong enough ally to israel in opposing iran's nuclear ambitions. >> israel doesn't need public lectures about how to weigh decisions of war and peace. it needs our support. if i'm president of the united states, my first foreign trip will be to israel to show the world we care about that country. >> reporter: he understood scored that during his july visit to jerusalem. >> the palestinians are going to say -- >> reporter: in a recently revealed tape from a closed fund-raiser

weather only to find out that the united states senate under democrat control will not even bring a budget plan to the senate floor. people should know the republican led house on the other hand, met its obligations, most significantly, it passed a budget to rescue america from debt crisis. >> alabama senator jeff sessions there. we have each side blaming the other. who do you think really gets the blame here? sn>> he's right the republicans accomplished their objectives because their objective is to rob obama of re-election, like that's what they said their objective is, the stated goal. maybe they haven't quite achieved that stated goal but in terms of what they're trying to do, they've gotten closer than the democrats for sure. the democrats have not been able to do anything because the republicans said that's their goal. it's hard to say staying in session any longer would improve things. this is a horrible meal. do you want seconds? there's one way to look at it, no way congress could get more unpopular. they'd have to spread diseases and kick babies to get more unpopular. i'm sure th
of the united states but more condemning the attack that took place on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. people taking to the streets yesterday in the thousands demanding democracy, but more importantly, demanding an end to these extremist militias whom people and the government here say were behind that attack that took the lives of four americans. at night on friday, hundreds of these pro democracy demonstrators began taking situations into their own hands and storming various headquarters of known militias in the city of benghazi, including the headquarters of the militia, and if you'll remember, the libyan government has said that it has detained individuals who are part of that group in association with the attack on the u.s. consulate although they say the group as a whole was not behind that assault. >> thank you so much for that reporting. meantime, president barack obama and u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton will be heading to new york next week for a meeting of the u.n. general assembly. the violence in the muslim world will likely be high on their talking points. they say the p
in the united states states. it would be practically anywhere because the care of the child is the responsibility of the child's parent. in this case, the doctors treating baby m decided she was so sick that damage to her brain was so profound and permanent that there was no point taking extensive and invasive measures to prolong her life. the parents said that it was a matter of love. it was a matter of faith, as you mentioned, that the child should be kept alive. they went to court. they went to court in edmonton, alberta. to the supreme court of canada, and the court decided the child's interest was not in having her life artificially prolonged. the judges heard the case and decided against the parents. it is a strange case. all the stranger because the reason that baby was so sick was because of the parents themselves. >> and so these parents, 34 years old, they are charged with assault and negligence for failing to provide the necessities of life. might there be other charges that are going to be more severe that are down the line? >> that is what this case really turns
condemnation has given a strong message that the united states government not only condemns it, but has absolutely no support for such blasphemous videos or content anywhere. i think that is an important message. i think that should go a long way in ending the violence on many streets in the world. >> brown: but in iran, at a military parade, president mahmoud ahmadinejad accused the u.s. and others of promoting strife under the guise of protecting civil liberties. >> ( translated ): they are seeking to trigger ethnic and religious conflicts. they chant fake slogans of freedom, and claim commitment to freedom of thought and freedom of speech. >> brown: and back in pakistan, prime minister raja pervez ashraf called for the world to outlaw blasphemy. >> we are demanding that the united nations and other international organizations seek a law that bans such hate speech aimed at fomenting hatred and sowing the seeds of discord through such falsehood. >> brown: in the meantime, pakistan shut down youtube access after the web site refused to remove the anti- islamic video. and in france, auth
not authorize the fast and furious operation that allowed 2000 weapons from the united states, mexico, and they were in the drug trafficking hands. i think that 200 mexicans might have died and also american agent brian terry. there is a report that 14 agents were responsible for the operation. shouldn't attorney general eric holder. he should have known about that and if he didn't, should you fire him? >> first of all, i think it's important for us to understand that the fast and furious program was a field initiated program begun under the previous administration. when eric holder found out about it, he discontinued it. but i will will tell you that eric holder has my complete confidence because he has shown himself to be willing to hold accountable those who took these actions. >> so this notion that the idea that it started previous administration and as jake tapper points out in a piece this morning that no it didn't start under the actual gun walking did but not the fast and the fearous actual program. >> nine months into the obama administration. fast and furious is as a progra
